Welcome to Nowhere (Bullet Hole Road) (2012)

Feature Film

8 out of 10! “By boldly mashing live action with motion graphics animation, Cusick establishes a universe that falls somewhere between the hyper-real and the unreal.” – Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit

Watch It Right Now! “Have you ever wondered what would happen if Gregory Crewdson, Sam Shepard, and Cory McAbee took mescaline at a roadside motel and got freaky with a video camera?” -Michael Tully, Hammer to Nail

In a series of warped, image-driven episodes, five strangers in the American West navigate overlapping landscapes of paradoxical fantasy. Constantly shifting perspective, the fractured narrative revolves around a poet, a hitchhiker and three strange motel rooms in the middle of the desert. A surrealistic combination of sparse dialogue, unsettling characters and abstracted animations, the film is a new take on the classic American road movie.
